The Old Fire Engine House
Celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, The Old Fire Engine House is still a beacon of delicious freshly made food, fine wine and delightful rural charm. Calming views of the cathedral and a lush walled garden brimming with fruit trees, herbs and flowers paints a pretty picture of this attractive Georgian house. There’s nowhere more idyllic to spend a sunny afternoon than in the spacious green garden, or in front of the flickering log fire during frosty evenings. The menu is rooted in tradition, and the team whips up a stellar selection of homemade British farmhouse fare using the abundance of local produce that’s available on their doorstep. Whether you swing by for morning tea or coffee, lunch, afternoon tea or dinner, you’ll be welcomed with a genuine smile. After your meal, browse the contemporary art in the two gallery spaces, taking your time to enjoy everything this place offers. This traditional treasure is the sort of place you wish was your local.
